I didn't receive a confirmation email, just the notice after completing the questionnaire stating 1-3 weeks.

Who did? I don't believe anyone got them

I received my Velodyne vFree today : )

 

They were brown boxed (no packaging included).

The vFree were in a Velodyne branded drawstring pouch and then bubble wrapped.

There was also a small white Velodyne labeled box with a mini-usb cord and an audio cord.

Finally there was a folded flyer/advertisement for the Velodyne skins/stickers available for the headphone.

 

Quality leaves a lot to be desired : (

(I can't imagine anyone trying these on, and then paying anywhere close MSRP for them)

T1's are excellent.  I tried the T1, T90, and also the Sennheiser HD800.  T1's are my favourite of those three.  The T1 seems more accurate sounding than the HD800s, IMO.  Also, they are more lively sounding too. The other difference is the soundstage, HD800 has a bigger soundstage, no question about it.

 

The newer T1s sound better than the early serial numbers, and are much more balanced on the frequency response.  I have own both a 15XX and now have a 135XX.  The improvement is tangible.

Really? They sound different? Interesting if there were any changes between the models over the years. Is there any other variable that could possibly cause such a tangible difference? Perhaps the pads?

Wow. They just went all the way up both on amazon and sonicsense.

Before they were available for 840$ daily. I guess it really was something I should have picked up.

Seems like they're back up to the retail price now.

840 is crazy, should have jumped on that!  Today aside the lowest I've seen is high 900s which has been more recently.  They usually never drop below 1k new and the lowest I've seen is in the 950-960 range.

 

I've been curious about the t1 recently and so was everybody at the last meet I went too so I thought I'd give em a try.  Should be a different flavor from the other hi-fi/summit-fi phones I've tried/owned (LCD-2 r1/2, LCD-3, AT W3000ANV, HE-500)

Yes, there is a huge difference.  The older serial numbers up to # 3950 had harsher (and generally harsh..busy treble).  

 

See this post of Headfonia:

There are graphs on Inner Fidelity where Tyll measured the frequency response of the new T1, and also graphs of the old one.  You can see the spike in the freq. response at 8000 - 9000 Hz is now corrected and made much flatter.  This is what caused some people to describe the treble as zingy on the T1s, IMO.  I was looking to open up these headphones and pad them with some insulation material to correct for it, but the new T1s don't have this problem at all.  Very enjoyable.

 

The pads are the same on the new ones.

 

I also thought the T5P was pretty good for what they were.  Definitely less detailed and articulate than the T1s, with less soundstage.  However, the presentation seemed more focused on the vocals, or rather less details on the top and bottom of the frequency response plot.

Please make sure you use the T1s with a good amp and reasonably good source.  If they sound bad, I'd say it's most likely that they are picking up noise in the equipment chain, among other things.

 

I am using mine with an Audiolab 8200CDQ DAC -> Eddie Current ZDT.  Excellent pairing, quite happy with it.

Authorized dealer (according to them) Sonic Sense has the T1 for $768 shipped, when you sign up with them for free as a member:

 

http://www.sonicsense.com/beyerdynamic-t-1.html

 

Also very good deals in that context on the DT 880 300 Ohms and Fostex closed cans.

Great deal on the T1. Both the TH600 and TH900 are out of stock though (unless you buy a bundle).
